Please join the entire Payton community as we extend a huge congratulations to Sophie Ishiwari ('19) and Isabel Kapustka ('21). The duo won the IHSA State Championship in doubles tennis this past weekend! Saturday's championship match started at Buffalo Grove High School but moved indoors to the Northbook Racquet Club after players endured hail and gale force winds. In the final contest, the Grizzlies faced Latin, a top-rated pair which included the defending 2017 state champion. Payton prevailed 6-0, 3-6, 6-1 in the championship match. Over the course of the three-day tournament, Ishiwari and Kapustka won seven matches, losing just one set on their way to the title. Congratulations on a job well done to Sophie, Isabel and their coaches, Jean Casserly and Marco Berroya!
